    Hi All-

    I recently got the iLive Karaoke machine that is compatible with the iPod. It says that if I'm downloading karaoke, it should have the lyric file with it. I just downloaded several karaoke tracks from iTunes but the lyrics are not showing up at all. Does iTunes not include the lyrics? If not, what is the purpose of selling the karaoke music!? Please help clear this up. Here is what the iLive website says:

    " Why do the karaoke songs I have purchased from iTunes fail to display the lyrics of my music? "
    • The reason your karaoke songs do not display lyrics on your iPod's screen is that you have purchased karaoke music (tracks with the vocals excluded from the song) only, rather than a file that includes a combination of both music and lyrics.
    • Before purchasing karaoke tracks, make sure you are purchasing karaoke music of the mp4 file extension or tracks that have been guaranteed by the distributor as being able to output lyrics to your screen.
    • There are programs available that have the ability to rip your existing CD+G karaoke CDs into music files with the mp4 file extension.
